little russel

Little Russel was seen writing on his notebook, completely zoned in, sitting on a rickshaw-van at the capital’s Curzon Hall area. He told this photojournalist that he loves to read and write, but his father cannot afford to send him to school. One day, when Russel asked to get admitted to a school, the father collected what little money he had and bought Russel pencils and a notebook. Far from being discouraged, he makes full use of the stationery, aiming to become -- in his own words -- a great man. PHOTO: Prabir Das
